Altus Adventum Primer


"Old School" is much more than mechanics of a game system.  It's an attitude.  An atmosphere.  A time when you hung out with your buddies playing an rpg having a blast; a time where you didn't get hung up on a rule or have to flip through a thousand pages of information.  A time where you didn't let the rules stop you from having fun, or hindering the game from progressing.  A time when you didn't sit there for fifteen minutes waiting for the player before you to resolve his or her turn before yours started.

That's what Altus Adventum 2nd Edition strives to be.  A rule system that is easy to learn, quick to play, and allows you to use those rule which you like, and ignore those that you don't.

What you have here is the Primer for the Altus Adventum game.  It includes all you need to start your own adventures, but is limited to only those begining skills, monsters, and items needed to create new characters.  If you enjoy this game, then please check out the full rules which can be found by simply clicking on the Sacrosant Games logo to the right.  The core rulebook includes not only more advances skills, monsters, items, and treasure, but also additional magical styles such as Totem, Rune, and others.

So have fun, as gaming was meant to be, and never let a rule stop you from doing so!

WHAT YOU SHOULD KNOW: I feel very bad about this one, because I was asked to review this quite a while back, apparently misplaced the file, and have let WAY too much time go by without touching it. Altus Adventum is isn't a retroclone, but it is an att [...]

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
